Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Best media to use for blast cabinet
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Tom Moorehead on Friday, January 01, 2016 - 07:48 am:

Can someone advise what the best media to use in my new (Christmas present) bench top blast cabinet, for use in removing rust from old parts? It appears that glass beads would be the best all around media? And will a moisture trap installed in the compressed air line do an adequate job of removing crud from the supply line air?
Thanks

I use aluminum oxide in mine and like it. I have a small moisture trap, seems to work well. :-)

Depends on what you are blasting. Super aggressive media can damage soft metals like aluminum. I like the glass bead from Harbor Freight.

Tom,
Mine worked great for years until I relocated the cabinet and compressor. I put the cabinet close to the compressor and started having moisture problems. I put a 25 ft half inch id hose, just coiled on the floor, between the compressor and the moisture trap on the cabinet and the problem was solved. The extra hose allows the moisture to condense and be caught in the trap. Before, the moisture didn't condense until it was in the cabinet. Good luck.
